After hitting the ball right at someone and stranding runners on base in double digits on Saturday, the White House High School baseball team bounced back to defeat the Panthers 12-4 Wednesday and even the season series.
White House traveled on the road and dominated the game to win their third straight game this week and improve to 4-2 for the season.
Tanner Carpenter (1-1) picked up the victory, striking out four batters and allowing three runs on six hits with a walk in four innings. Zane Brown got the old-fashioned three inning save, allowing an unearned run on one hit with three strikeouts.
White House took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first on a two-run double by Hunter Matherly on a full count pitch to start the scoring.
In the fourth, White House made it a 9-3 lead when Sam Abshire, Dustin Palmer, Caden Blackford and Brown all picked up an RBI with four runs in the frame.
Blackford and Abshire each had three hits and two RBIs for the second straight game, while Brown drove in three and Matherly was 2-4 with two runs driven in.
Blake Anderson also picked up a base hit in his only plate appearance.
White House is scheduled to play at Springfield in non-district play on Friday.
